The cover of Martha Stewart Halloween magazine is ghoulish all right. The pink-ish eye makeup and purple lipstick are way goth. Cleary, Martha peeped our 8 Starlets Who’ve Gone Goth slideshow and wanted to join in! [BUST Magazine] Keep reading »
Hey, big news! Abercrombie & Fitch has a few T-shirts in its “New College” line that are, like, way sexual and sexist and not particularly funny. (The shirts above say “Show the Twins,” “Female Students Wanted for Sexual Research,”and “Female streaking encouraged.”) And people are mad about it! The American Family Association (AFA), a religious organization, says the shirts promote a “sex-as-recreation” agenda, but I don’t really think that’s the problem or a problem at all. I mean, sex is recreation. However, the shirts are sexist, foul and not funny. That said, they are extremely helpful in identifying douchebags from a distance and that is a plus.

I have one dating rule: if you don’t kiss by the second date, you’re just friends.
Problem is, this will not be applicable in Paris because the French have no dating rules. And not “no rules” in that oh come on, everyone knows you can’t call him way. We’re talking “no rules” in that no one in Paris dates; therefore, no one knows how to date. It’s true—there is no word for “dating” in French. They don’t even employ the English word with an accent like they do for “business” or “cool.”

Kingston Rossdale’s hair was styled similar to his mom Gwen Stefani‘s at New York Fashion Week. Even his little finger nails are painted an electric yellow to fit in with the L.A.M.B. look. Maybe the nanny should read our guide to recreating Gwen’s beauty so she’ll fit in with the family. [NYC, 9/10/09] Keep reading »
Watchdogs have gotten riled up about Joe Camel’s appeal to children and teens in the past, but soon they could have SmokeStixx on their hit list. This website sells customizable cigarette box wraps that let people play dress-up with their ciggys. Isn’t that fun! Here’s SmokeStixx’s rationale behind this unnecessary product:
“Cigarette consumers no longer need to feel ashamed about buying cigarettes. SmokeStixx decals dramatically transform the appearance of cigarette boxes into fashion forward accessories. With new motifs launching every month, cigarette consumers can constantly stay ahead of the pack.”
I’m calling BS. With designs like a pink tiara, flaming skull, and psychedelic disco lights on the decals, we all know exactly who would want this product — teens, who can totally afford the 99 cents price. [SmokeStixx via Trend de la Creme] Keep reading »
Take it with a grain of salt from a jaded old editor, but Fashion’s Night Out was actually really, really awesome and fun. I say that because no one really knew what to expect, and plenty of fashion editors were downright down on the whole thing. Maybe it’s because industry insiders are so used to being exclusive and it’s all about getting on the right list to closed-to-the-”commoners” events. So FNO, which involved all these stores throwing swishy parties that were no RSVP-required, seemed vaguely threatening somehow. Let everyone in? How’s that gonna work?
The answer is it worked like a charm. In fact, it may have been the best party of Fashion Week. Did I mention there was lots of free champagne? Keep reading »
There’s a “difference of opinion” on what exactly went down between Tila Tequila and Shawne Merriman in that alleged incident over the weekend, but Tila’s injuries were undeniable as she left a Beverly Hills hotel today. Keep reading »
There’s a chill in the air! So, out come the light jackets, scarves, and tights. Hooray for fall, my favorite season! Which season’s clothes do you prefer?
You know what Oprah wants for Christmas? Well, besides world peace, chocolate that makes you lose weight, and copies of The Secret for everyone in the universe? She is jonesing to interview Jaycee Lee Dugard, who returned home a week and a half ago after being kidnapped and held captive for 18 years. “I want that interview,” Oprah told “The Insider.” “Obviously, like everybody else in this business, I have ‘my people’ working on that. It’s the first time I have ever called up a producer and said, ‘Are we on this story? Because I want that interview!’” [Celebitchy]
